Netgear R8000 Buffer Bloat

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have had a Netgear R8000 for quite some time recently ran a few test and realized this thing has horrible buffer bloat to it, after reading quite some bit about it seems like a semi common thing but I still would like to try and work on it. Enabling QOS on the router does drop it some but it is still in the 400-500ms range which is STUPIDLY high. I installed DD-WRT on the router and enabling QOS with it dropped it down too but still it was in the 300-400ms but after fighting for days with wifi issues I gave up on it and went back to factory firmware. Is there anything else that can be done to help combat buffer bloat? Is this truly common to all routers? I understand DOCIS 3.1 is supposed to be the fix for the latency and buffer issues but as it stands is there anything that can be done?

Thanks a head of time everyone.

Yes, Bufferbloat is regrettably extremely common. (In fact, it's everywhere: routers, DSLAMs, cable head ends, etc. It's in all equipment if the designers/programmers have not done something to fix it.)

The best reference on the subject is "What can I do about Bufferbloat?" at https://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/bloat/wiki/What_can_I_do_about_Bufferbloat/
